In fifa 21, I was a D1, G1 player, who used a full attack of 5* skillers. In fifa 22 though, skills aren't as important. I've been playing a 4-2-3-1 with Rooney at CAM, Saint-Max ST, with Martial and Mahrez on the wings, so those skillers were enough for me.
I tried Rooney's base card, and was blown away. So I sold my Varane and Kante and bought the Mid. This card, is the best card I've used all game, and I've tried messi, ronaldo and neymar. He is so strong, and wins the ball almost as much as he retains it when people try to tackle him. His pace feels like 99, and his shooting feels like 99, which they are with the hunter I've been using. He feels so strong, and keeps the ball when he dribbles, which he does so fast that skills dont actually matter.
Ive noticed his weak foot only as couple of times, but it doesn't let the card down at all really. His volleys are insane, and his shot power is ridiculous, and his finesse's from outside the box are so powerful.
I hated this game until i got him, and couldn't win a game. He's changed my whole team, has scored a hatrick in every champs qualification ive played him in.
I made this account to post this review! Im an Arsenal fan, so if I was a united fan, and I had the coins, I would ship the whole club for this card... He's insane
Weakfoot (feels like 4.5*)
Sometimes dribbling lets him down
I've been fan of Rooney ever since i can remember. When i saw he was getting an icon, i decided to buy FIFA 22 because i had to play with him. I traded and got enough coins to buy his mid for 1.1 Million coins. He is worth every penny. Before finally buying Rooney, i played with Mid Cryuff, Eto'o, Mid Puskas, Mbappe and attackers like that. Rooney beats them all. He isnt as fast as Mbappe, but hes fast, got insane strength ingame, crazy dribbling and a shot you can rely on. 3* skill moves doesnt make a diffrence. I dont feel like i need the 4* skills when playing with him. His weakfoot is like 4.5*
Overall, he is extremely fun to play with and i really like him. I dont think i will ever sell him. If you've got the coins, i would really recommend him as a ST. I play in 4231, 41212(2) and most recently 352. In 2 striker formations, i used IF Mane, which is another quality player, but not same level as Rooney.
I used Engine chem style on him
- He's fast. Not mbappe fast, but a 9/10
- His shooting is crazy good. He is the only player ive tried with such a reliable shot.
- Passing is nothing to complain about. He plays alot like a CF for me, so good passing is needed, and hes got it.
- Dribbing was the thing i worried about the most. I shouldnt have, its amazing, really good and combined with his strength, its really hard to get the ball of him.
- Strength?: Think of bald Rooney.
Some would say his 3* skill moves is a con, but for me, i dont feel it. His dribbling ability makes up for it.
